Caley Thistle: ‘As far as we are concerned this is not over’ – Fisher

Caley Thistle forward Alex Fisher insists his Inverness team-mates are not resigned to their fate despite falling five points from safety in the Scottish Premiership.

A 4-2 defeat at Motherwell on Saturday leaves Richie Foran’s side further adrift at the bottom of the league with just five games remaining.

Fisher, however, remains defiant and said: “We lost 4-2 but there were periods in the game where we played really well and we need to hold on to those moments and make them count. We will stick to what we know we can do in the last five games which will be cup finals.

“It’s tough but we have a strong will and a very positive mood. As far as we are concerned this is not over.

“Dundee will be as nervous as anyone going into the last five games but we will try to focus on what we can control.

“I imagine teams will be taking points off each other, so we have to string some wins together to escape the drop. We are only two wins away from being back in the mix and we’re focused on our next game a week on Friday.

“We’re ready for the games to come and we’re focusing on ourselves. We are going into every game fighting tooth and nail to get the wins we have to get now.”

The Highlanders lost 4-2 at Motherwell in contentious circumstances after officials ruled Scott McDonald’s header at 2-2 had crossed the line.

Inverness protested at the decision and Fisher, who scored his side’s two goals, said he and his team-mates will use their sense of injustice as motivation for the post-split fixtures.

Fisher said: “We can’t focus on the negatives from this defeat but we have to use the decision as a motivation and remain positive.

“It’s very hard to take. Before the game we knew exactly what was required and following a poor start we put ourselves right back into the game before a decision was made which made it so hard for us to come back.

“I was far away from the incident, so I can’t say for certain whether the ball was across the line. We didn’t speak about it in the changing room but if the official said it was over the line the decision is not going to be changed.

“It’s a shame it has led to the end result which has left us in the position we are in.”
